Post1990 graduates are likely to become a generation without property ownership due to more emphasis on personal value，the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences published in a report on Wednesday.
Around 30 percent of the post90s graduates surveyed live in a property of below 20 square meters one year after graduation.Half of the surveyed said they are unwilling to degrade their living conditions by incurring housing debts.
The report，Society Blue Paper: China Social Situation Analysis and Prediction，surveyed 4,110 students born after 1990 in 12 universities across the country.Of the interviewed,2,730 of them are currently still students at school and 1,380 are graduates.
The survey reveals that in a year after graduation，more than 70 percent of graduates rent houses or live in dormitories provided by their employers.About 20 percent live at home of their parents or relatives and less than 5 percent live in the houses of their own.
“ The report shows most post90s graduates have to purchase a house on their own，” said Tian Feng，deputy director of the research lab for teenagers and social problems affiliated(隶属的)to CASS.It is still a rigid(一成不变的)demand for the post90s to have their own houses.Only one third of respondents agree to lower their current living conditions to save money to purchase a house，and about 55 percent choose not to buy a house if the investment means a heavy debt burden.
More than half of the graduates believe that property investment is the best way to maintain the value of money for the time being.However，if the graduates had a sum of money for a down payment on a home，most said they would rather use the money on entrepreneurship(创业)or other business endeavors which they say provide a sense of achievement.
Tian said that on the one hand，the post1990 generation recognize traditional Chinese values which regard property as a necessity to build a family but on the other hand，they prefer a highquality and freestyle life instead of living under the economic restrictions imposed by heavy house loans.

When her five daughters were young, Helene An always told them that there was strength in unity(团结). To show this, she held up one chopstick, representing one person. Then she easily broke it into two pieces. Next, she tied several chopsticks together, representing a family. She showed the girls it was hard to break the tied chopsticks. This lesson about family unity stayed with the daughters as they grew up.
Helene Ann and her family own a large restaurant business in California. However, when Helene and her husband Danny left their home in Vietnam in 1975, they didn't have much money. They moved their family to San Francisco. There they joined Danny's mother, Diana, who owned a small Italian sandwich shop. Soon afterwards, Helene and Diana changed the sandwich shop into a small Vietnamese restaurant. The five daughters helped in the restaurant when they were young. However, Helene did not want her daughters to always work in the family business because she thought it was too hard.
Eventually the girls all graduated from college and went away to work for themselves, but one by one, the daughters returned to work in the family business. They opened new restaurants in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Even though family members sometimes disagreed with each other, they worked together to make the business successful. Daughter Elizabeth explains, “Our mother taught us that to succeed we must have unity, and to have unity we must have peace. Without the strength of the family, there is no business.”
Their expanding business became a large corporation in 1996, with three generations of Ans working together. Now the Ans' corporation makes more than $20 million each year. Although they began with a small restaurant, they had big dreams, and they worked together. Now they are a big success.

Across Britain，burnt toast will be served to mothers in bed this morning as older sons and daughters rush to deliver their supermarket bunches of flowers. But，according to a new study，we should be placing a higher value on motherhood all year.
Mothers have long known that their home workload was just as heavy as paid work.Now，the new study has shown that if they were paid for their parental labours，they would earn as much as ￡172，000 a year.
The study looked at the range of jobs mothers do，as well as the hours they are working，to determine the figure.This would make their yearly income ￡30，000 more than the Prime Minister earns.
By analysing the numbers，it found the average mother works 119 hours a week，40 of which would usually be paid at a standard rate and 79 hours as overtime.After questioning 1，000 mothers with children under 18，it found that, on most days，Mums started their routine work at 7 am and finished at around 11 pm.
To calculate just how much mothers would earn from that labour，it suggested some of the roles that Mums could take on，including housekeeper，parttime lawyer，personal trainer and entertainer.Being a parttime lawyer，at ￡48.98 an hour，would prove to be the most profitable of the “Mum jobs”，with psychologist(心理学家) a close second.
It also asked mothers about the challenges they face，with 80 per cent making emotional(情感的) demand as the hardest thing about motherhood.
Over a third of Mums felt they needed more training and around half said they missed going out with friends.
The study shows mothers matter all year long and not just on Mother's Day.The emotional，physical and mental energy mothers devote to their children can be neverending，but children are also sources of great joy and happiness.Investing(投入) in time for parenting and raising relationships is money well spent.
32.How much would a mother earn a year if working as the Prime Minister?
33.The biggest challenge for most mothers is from ________.
A.emotional demand B.low pay for work
C.heavy workload D.lack of training
34.What is stressed in the last paragraph?
A.Mothers' importance shows in family all year long.
B.The sacrifices mothers make are huge but worthwhile.
C.Mothers' devotion to children can hardly be calculated.
D.Investing time in parenting would bring a financial return.
35.What can we conclude from the study?
A.Mothers' working hours should be largely reduced.
B.Mothers should balance their time for work and rest.
C.Mothers' labour is of a higher value than it is realized.
D.Mothers should be freed from housework for social life.

How are you going recently ? I miss you very much.
I was your student for four years and I really learned much from you. You taught us how to be real and honest people, for which I was grateful. From the bottom of my heart, I will say “thank you” to you and our school.
